Notes

Source: Youth Risk Behaviour Survey (YRBS), Centres for Disease Control (CDC), USA. Adapted for use in HBSC 2001/02.

Description: A measure of contraception used at the last experience of sexual intercourse. This question and the following item on condom use (M27 below) aim to measure separately the methods used to prevent pregnancy and to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.  Cognitive testing during the development of these on contraceptive use (by the YRBS) showed that asking the questions separately helps to ensure that respondents adequately consider what actions they took on both counts.
